Friday Night Fights: John Scott Will Punch Your Mustache Off

John Scott's first attempt to ride the El goes poorly

John Scott is a mountain of a man.  He's a big, big man.

He's huge, 6 feet, 8 inches tall, and weighing in at 260 pounds.

We know he can fight, and that's pretty much what the Blackhawks are going to ask him to do.

And, we pretty much know that the guy is destined to be a folk hero in Chicago.  He'll probably 100 games in two years, fight 6 or 7 times, score a goal or two on accident and the locals will build a statue to him as soon they can find a substance which is plentiful enough to complete the job.

The Hawks showed last year, that you can win a Stanley Cup without a true enforcer (as did the Penguins in 2009, and the Red Wings in 2008).  Most people who don't generally manage teams in New York or Philadelphia seem to understand that.

But hey, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy having him around.  There's plenty of video evidence that says this guy is going to kick somebody's ass this year.  Tonight's fight showcases John against veteran pugilist George Parros.  Parros, of course, is known for two things that we here at Hockeenight love - punching guys in the face, and having a kickass mustache.  But John Scott doesn't cotton to a man trying to show him up in both categories.  So, he decides to punch Parros' mustache into the back of his head.

Keep in mind, Parros is no flyweight himself, he's 6'5" and 222 lbs.  And Scott doesn't knock him down with a haymaker, he just throws a jab into Parros' face, and that's enough to knock him down.

I think I'm gonna like having this kid around, but we're gonna need to get him a nickname.  Nominations will be taken in the comments below.

I'm leaning towards "Murdersaurus".

    I think the most amazing part of that video, is when Scott goes to throw his third or so punch and Parros actually catches it in his hand and stops it. But damn, Scott can throw a punch.

    Okay, nickname options:
    Garg (as in gargantuan)
    Or maybe just combine them all FuckMeatGargStick.

    But John does the honorable thing, and eases Parros to the ice after he loses his balance following the last blow.

    Ya wouldn't want the man to actually get hurt.

      I probably wouldn't have noticed that without you mentioning it, but you're right - he's a goon, but not an asshole. Gotta love that and I think he'll fit in with this team.

      Now, if they could only figure out to teach him how to play a bit - maybe get in a few "real shifts" here and there. Would be good if he could be more than dead weight.
